Audio in HD

The most "popular" review on this site is a disgruntled customer who may have received a unit that got past inspection in poor order or else was damaged in transport. This does every other positive an injustice. My experience of this unit after two weeks has been excellent so far.
DA Conversion: Superb - I have interfaces from Zoom (R8), Tascam (US 16-08), Behringer (404HD and UMC 1820, ADA8200 Pre's), Native Instruments, Maschine Mk 3 and ocassionally I use the Digitakt as a DAC when operating in a DAW. I can safely say my unit has by a very audible margin the best output audio quality of any of the aforementioned. The Behringers may beat it in output volume (the 404HD in particular) but the claritiy of the audio with the ID14 is exceptional.
2) Loopback: This features allows you to flawlessly record incoming audio from any source within your computer directly into your DAW. A particularly nice feature for podcasters and OBS users as well.
3) Build is excellent, but I expect that from a "premium" product.
4) 8 x 48K ADAT inputs. This means I can offload the UMC 1820 and the Tascam and upgrade my monitors :)

Cons: wish it had a 5 pin din in/out like all the other units I have.

Highly recommended especially for the additional features.


Too many issues for such a renowned brand
daaaabd 10.04.2021
I was very pumped about the iD14 mkII. Bus power, LED meters, a massive history in audio industry - everything I knew about Audient and its products brought me to purchase the new iD14. I was disappointed to say the least.

- build quality is nice, aesthetically good
- controls on the top panel allow for lots of negative space around them with a smaller form factor than the competitors
- LED meters

- drivers implementation is absolute garbage. See issues below
- at times, the interface would be initialised at max volume after connecting it to a Mac or Win computer, thus potentially harming my equipment and ears if I don't remember to touch the big volume knob upon starting the interface. Moving the knob will snap the volume at the correct value, but if you forget to do that, expect to jump on your chair at the first notification you get
- the interface produces a loud pop when powered up, making it fit for mobile setups, not so much for desktop or non-mobile setups where users will want to start their whole gear up with one single action
- when connected to a computer in sleep mode, the iD14 keeps requesting power from the bus source, thus staying on when connected to a sleeping device. This drains the computer's battery very quickly, and it's painful especially with mobile setups
- these issues would be acceptable on Behringer and similar low-budget brands, and none of the above is happening anyway on those products. An Audient product at that price point simply cannot show such problems, and this puts this product way below the competition
- all the issues above were reported to Audient's support centre, which proven inadequate as far as helping fixing them. Long response times, useless suggestions, no reporting of the issue to engineers that could fix it. I was basically asked to do QA on those issues for free. That can't happen.

Very, very disappointed with the product and the brand in general.


A lot of feature for his price
Gol. D. Roger 24.11.2021
This interface not only has high quality converters and clean class A preamps, but even a solid metal chassis and sturdy controls both for the preamps and for the volume knob/iD control, which I love for a product that's meant to live many years.
The multiple features are hard (if not impossible) to find in other interface of the same price/level, like the 2 different earphones output (with different DAC) or the combined ADAT-S/PDIF input or even the 4 line outputs, allowing you to build a pro quality home studio and to use different setups at a very affordable price.
Thanks to Thomann for the impeccable delivery (and price!) and to Audient for a fantastic and gorgeous piece of art!


Clear of the Focusrite!
Owen A 29.07.2022
Small form factor, swift knobs and clicky buttons; it feels like a tool; but you can also forget about it and let it do it's thing with no worry.

Functionality wise, it's perfect when used with the drivers/software, the iD button can be used for a number of things out of the box such as the volume dial controlling digital dials in DAW in replacement of the scroll wheel; gimmicky but useful with fine tuning and you definitely feel more like you're in a real studio.

Note however, unlike the scarlet there is no innate 1 Channel/Mono option for the microphone in the driver settings, it can only be set in DAW or whatever communication application you're using has to mix down to mono otherwise your recorded sound will only play on the left-output.

All in all, I prefer it to my Focusrite Scarlet 2i2 3rd Gen and MOTU M4.

Had dirty pans on the focusrite so there was some crackling when turning up the volume on my LP6's and IN8's, however these are perfect; extra credit for the lights on the interface showing me the exact dbFS volume when I dial it in.

The gain is also clean enough to drive an SM7b without a pre-amp; and personally it sounds much warmer or less harsh than with a focusrite.

I recommend the purchase.
